Five headline in Almondsbury

The boyband Five, now a three-piece but keeping the same name, will headline a three-day festival at a community pub in Almondsbury later this summer. 

In the late 1990s, Five had a string of chart hits including Everybody Get Up and Keep On Moving before splitting in 2001. At their height, the band sold 3.4 million singles and 1.6 million albums in the UK. They reformed a few times after this and are now back together again and on their way to South Gloucestershire to join this new festival. The current line-up features original members Scott Robinson, Ritchie Neville and Sean Conlon. 

The Small Town, Big Music Festival will be held at Almondsbury Creative from 6-8 September and sees a plethora of bands and performers take to the two stages at the event across the three days. Organisers say: “We’ve got a huge range of brilliant acts already lined up, alongside food trucks, bars, stalls, walkabout entertainers, funfair, children’s zone and much much more.”

On the Friday, the main stage will host Doreen and Doreen and Showhawk Duo, while on the Saturday they switch things up with a country music lineup, including Tenille Arts and Kezia Gill. And on Sunday, Five will perform as will one or two other artists who are yet to be announced.
